Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Venture out of the city with trips to Murray Street Vineyards (in Greenock), Hahndorf (The Cedars & Beerenberg Farm) and McLaren Vale (Primo Estate & Dog Ridge Winery). Dedicate the 29th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Adelaide Botanic Garden, get to know the resident critters at Adelaide Zoo, identify plant and animal life at Cleland Wildlife Park, and take an in-depth tour of Migration Museum.
